Skysun Solar Power Trial

Skysun LLC, a Glide Portfolio Company and Innovation Fund Winner, is now on campus to conduct a solar power trial. Skysun is developing a new method of solar concentration that will substantially decrease system complexity and installation costs by using mirrors to focus the sun's heat to a tower using ganged heliostat arrays.

  
The first phase of the Elyria Trials will help determine the optimal configuration of the reflectors.

   
Scalability and cost implications will be determined in the second phase which is scheduled to begin during the fall of 2013.

  
Concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies use mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers that collect solar energy and convert it to heat. This thermal energy can then be used to produce electricity via a steam turbine or heat engine that drives a generator.  From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. The final product is electricity; a single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes.
